Temperatures drop, ice jam near Logan


A crippling winter storm sent temperatures this week well below zero across Southwest Montana.

According to, the low temperature in Three Forks was -32 on March 3, -39 on March 4, and -27 on March 5.

Snowplows have been busy across Southwest Montana.

The National Weather Service issued a flood warning until March 8 at 5:45 p.m. due to an ice jam on the Gallatin River near Logan. Water levels are reported to be below the flood stage in the area, but the risk for flooding will continue through the week.

The Gallatin County Sheriff's Office reported Saturday that the Logan-Trident Road had water running across it at the bridge/railroad tracks and advised local residents to drive carefully and if there is any doubt to take another route.

Due to the cold temperatures, the Three Forks Schools cancelled all bus routes on Monday and Tuesday. The school had normal operating hours both days, but students who decided to stay home were marked as having a "snow day".

Several field trips were also cancelled and along with afternoon services will return once the temperatures raise to safer levels for both students and drivers.
